Elizabeth Warren refuses DNA test to prove Native American heritage | New York Post

WASHINGTON – Sen. Elizabeth Warren batted down calls for her to take a DNA test to prove her Native American heritage in an interview that aired Sunday.

“I know who I am. And never used it for anything. Never got any benefit from it anywhere,” Warren said of her ancestry on NBC’s “Meet the Press.”

Well, that's not strictly true, if you count being a professor at Harvard.

Of course, she could put this to rest with a DNA test. I'm certain she's already had a test done and that it showed no such ancestry. She's simply a liar. That either bothers you or it doesn't.

If she'd lied simply to seem a little more exotic I'd not be bothered. But she lied to exploit the absurd race privilege system. Crook!
